Le kaléidoscope propose une veille de sites croisant art, vidéo, féminisme, cinéma, genre.... Une veille qui collecte et partage.
Cette interface agit tel "un instrument tubulaire contenant un jeu de miroirs et des fragments de verre mobiles, diversement découpés et colorés, produisant des figures qui varient à chaque secousse reçue par l’appareil." (définition du kaléidoscope par notre chère Académie française) auquel on aurait judicieusement ajouté du gender.

Sans titre. Cinq blocs de chêne taillés, mousse. Dimensions au sol : 15 x 8 m. Parc de sculpture, Ile de Vassivière, Limousin, France. Le nom de Dominique Bailly résonne dans le parc de sculpture de Vassivière en Limousin. Sa sculpture a consisté à nettoyer le site, "une clairière dans la forêt. La procédure de nettoyage est ici appliquée au sol d’où elle a dégagé un chaos de granit, progressivement enfoui sous des sédiments végétaux et mémoire de la vieille pénéplaine limousine. Les fouilles ont mis à jour un renflement central insoupçonné dont la forme est celle d’un tumulus et autour duquel les blocs dégagés s’ordonnent de manière presque circulaire. A ce résultat déjà surprenant du travail «archéologique» s’ajoute le geste mimétique qui lie l’origine de la sculpture aux formes décelées dans le paysage : cinq (...)

I know this place I live here Where dresses wear deeper voices than suits Where tattoos and piercings are shaded in rainbow colors Where 7 closets have other shades inside of them Then come out as bubbles and feathers at least once a year.

Where we break inside because we can’t come out to taste the sun That will reflect a spectrum The infamous colors 7 CHAKRAS LGBTIQA The androgeny of the spectrum of life That’s when the night crawlers are all over Hunting for our virginity Haunting our consciousness to argue with self Make believe that your difference is unacceptable to society.

Text by Yaya Mavundla Photos by Zanele Muholi Celebrity friends paying their last respect to Iko… The funeral service of Iko Mash was very painful. Iko who passed away on the 21st of July 2017 was buried on Saturday the 29th of July 2017. Her funeral service was held at Thaba-Jabula Secondly School in Soweto. The service was scheduled to start at 8-11am and finish at 11am but due to people arriving late at the venue it went for extra 30 minutes. The programme did not go as planned. There were a lot of people who ended up speaking in the podium who were not on the programme. A lot of things that Iko Mash believed in was taken away from her. Most speakers did not respect who Iko was. Her grandfather who spoke on behalf of the family  (who was not in the programme) said he did not (...)

Ramaphosa was distracted by a group of activists who felt the government have constantly neglected the need to provide proper healthcare for average South Africans at public facilities. A group of activists walked out on Ramaphosa, just before the exit they shouted, “Remember Marikana”. Regardless of the protest, deputy president carried on with his speech he had prepared. (...)

It had been too long without studying full-time but I couldn’t wait to meet new people who also wanted to pursue their careers in photography but in different genres understandably. Everyone was welcoming especially the staff, as they made each student feel at home and we were the first Foundation Course students of 2017 to attend classes in the newly built building in Newtown and the building looked stunning.

My childhood wasn’t that bad, my parents supported me emotionally, I had friends and siblings who wouldn’t make me feel otherwise. It was a fun and colourful childhood. I played with more girls than boys. When did you discover your sexuality and was it easy accepting yourself? At Grade 8, that’s when I started wearing women’s underwear.

"Directly across the street, at eye level, was NEO Bankside, three luxury condo towers, their facades crisscrossed in a metric of steel braces. In the nearest tower, no more than 200 feet from where we were standing, rose a series of angular glass living rooms, each meticulously furnished, each empty. In one, three white chairs stood in silent conference. In another, a telescope pointed reproachfully back at us. The only sign of life was a pair of slippers next to an uncomfortable-looking lime-green chaise longue.I and my fellow observers were faced with a dilemma. A notice on the viewing terrace asked us to “Please respect our neighbours’ privacy,” yet for the rest of our museum experience we had been encouraged to look, to question, to interact.

Parmi ces prix, le Barbara Hammer Lesbian Experimental Filmmaking Grant, récompensera chaque année une personne s'identifiant comme lesbienne, pour un travail artistique "visionnaire" de l'image. Tout ça, on le doit comme son nom à Barbara Hammer, qui a inscrit la pérennité de ce prix dans sa succession. Un prix sera décerné par des lesbiennes à des lesbiennes, comme l'explique Barbara Hammer: " Le but de ma vie a été de porter un style de vie lesbien à l'écran. Pourquoi?
